Tests Pending In Julia Roberts Sister Death
(Los Angeles, CA) -- Authorities are awaiting the results of toxicology tests to determine what killed the half-sister of Oscar winner Julia Roberts. Nancy Motes was found dead Sunday at a Los Angeles-area home where she was reportedly house and dog sitting. The coroner's office says her death was reported as a possible suicide or overdose. Motes' body was reportedly found in a bathtub. Prescription and non-prescription drugs were also reportedly found on the scene. Roberts' family, which also includes Julia's actor brother Eric Roberts and his daughter, actress Emma Roberts, issued a statement confirming Motes' death. The family says it is both "shocked and devastated."

Nominated for an Oscar this year for her work in "August: Osage County," Julia Roberts has cancelled several scheduled appearances this week. She was a no-show at the Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon in Beverly Hills on Monday and also scrubbed her guest spot on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" later that day.
